Whale watching

Sailing to the Icefjord for sightings of icebergs and a whale watching adventure.

We will sail towards the Icefjord, coming close to the icebergs that have made this area world-known. Our skipper and sailor guide will be actively looking for the fin and humpback whales that have been numerous around Ilulissat from the end of May to late autumn.

During the summer, Ilulissat becomes ”the city that never sleeps”, and what could an adventurer think of other than experiencing and sensing while the sun still reigns on, the places where the whales might be hiding, possibly behind the next iceberg around the corner? Don't despair, we are ready to begin the search for the whales, their blows which can sometimes be heard miles away and the spectacular sight of approaching Ilulissat's giant icebergs.

 

Of course, we need to see the icebergs at close but safe distance, and our skipper is constantly aware that the whales can appear 360 degrees around the boat, so we’ll keep an eye out in all directions once we have passed the city hospital. The whales often tend to forage close to the icefjord, which is full of life and sustenance, which is why we can almost guarantee you perfect sight and experiences, even if they prolong their arrival.
